High School Students See
Pictures; Track Meet
Won By River Roulge
The first annual Track and Base-
ball Clinic was a definite success to
judge by the reactions of the coaches
who were in attendance yesterday
morning and afternoon.
Dan Kinsey, 1924 Olympic high
hurdle champion, who is coaching at
Oberlin, summed up the general opin-
ion by saying: "It's an excellent idea.
Seeing expert runners and players
perform, and then having their ac-
tions explained by such fine coaches
is a really great opportunity. Every
coach should take in something like
this once in a while."
Pictures Shown
In the morning, the coaches and
several hundred high school athletes
saw motion pictures of track meets,
and also the American League's "100
Years of Baseball." In the after-
noon, the first River Rouge Invita-
tion Meet was held at the Yost Field
House.
River Rouge proved to be the
strongest of the nine schools which
entered teams in the meet, as they
scored in every event to pile up 66 34
points. Flint Central, who scored in
all events except the pole vault, took
second with 48% points, and the rest'
of the field trailed. Wyandotte scored
24 points; Dearborn, 21; Algonac,
191/2; Lansing Eastern, 19; Adrian,
434; Melvindale, 41/2; and Ann Arbor,
2.

Netmen Ready
For Trip South'
Tobin And DurstI upre-ss
In Practice Dradil,
With but one week remaining be-
fore they embark on their annual
spring trip into the South, the var-
sity tennis team is rapidly rounding
into shape.
Coach Weir announced that he will
take eight men with him when the
team leaves on next Friday or Satur-
day. At present, two sophomores are
leading the squad as far as accuracy
and timing are concerned. They
are Jim Tobin and Sam Durst.
The first game on the schedule is
against Washington and Lee at Lex-
ington, Virginia, on April 10. Before
the team returns to Ann Arbor, they
will have played six matches, the
other opponents being V.M.I., Univer-
sity of Virginia, George Washington
University, University of Maryland
and Duquesne University.
On last year's trip, the team won
three matches while dropping two.
